If you or someone else were living with the tenant when they died, you may be entitled to 'succeed' or inherit the tenancy. You can apply online to succeed a tenancy. Speak to your housing officer for more advice on succession.

Surrendering a tenancy on behalf of a friend or loved one can be a difficult time. Please contact our team who can talk you through the process and can point you towards any support you may need.
